Brisbane North Region - COUGARS

The Brisbane North Cougars established in 2001 have been a very successful club for over 19 years.

In 2018 Cougars joined the Netball Queensland franchised Sapphire and Ruby League competitions, where Cougars have 1 representative team playing in each competition.

The 2020 season was a successful one for both Cougars teams, winning the 2020 Sapphire Championship title and our Ruby team doing very well by ending their season as Runners Up.

Cougars also offer player annual development programs, that are run by head coach Liz White and her Cougars players.

Cougars NetSetGo (5 - 7yrs)
Cougar Cubs (12 - 15yrs)
Cougar Cats (15 - 18yrs)

HART Sapphire & Ruby Series'

HART SAPPHIRE SERIES

The HART Sapphire Series will not just replace the Queensland State Netball League but build upon it, elevating Queensland’s incredible netball talent to become the stars of tomorrow.

The league was named after the official gemstone of Queensland and, as the sapphire is also the second hardest gem behind the diamond, is an apt metaphor for the quality and toughness of the competition.

The vision of the HART Sapphire Series is to be a semi-professional league that champions local heroes by raising the next wave of netballing talent to a bigger and brighter stage, inspiring future generations of players, coaches and umpires to step up to the national level.

RUBY SERIES

The Ruby Series underpins the HART Sapphire Series and provides a direct pathway for developing Queensland’s emerging talent. The Ruby Series provides an opportunity for players from right across Queensland to prepare for a place in the HART Sapphire Series as well as providing exciting young talent with the opportunity to learn from and be exposed to more experienced players and coaches.

Each Ruby Series’ team will have a direct link to a HART Sapphire Series team, providing opportunities for every player to advance. This provides links to further Queensland netball players and gives them equal opportunity.

Both the HART Sapphire Series and Ruby Series ensure young netballers around the State have a visible aspirational goal.

Participation in the Ruby Series will form a crucial step in the development framework for players to move from the Queensland Premier League up into the Ruby Series and then be a candidate for HART Sapphire Series contract. Ultimately, this will enhance the number of Queensland players who are ready to step into the Suncorp Super Netball competition.
